So I am going to go with cockroach size movement. Its enough I could take a video and probably show you. Its probably strong of a 1/32" each way. I want to say its almost a 1/16th but I think thats a big of an exaggeration.
the guy is an idiot. Dan Fl is correct about the screw. it only adjusts the overtravel, not slack. and it can be adjusted too much. some people even think it's for adjust trigger pull weight. it's not.
if you only have about 1/32" movement total, that sounds acceptable. the only way to fix it would be to replace the trigger with a new one that has a thicker and taller trigger bow. find a competent 1911 gunsmith and let him look at it and see if the amount is too much and if so, send it back to Remington for repairs.
if you can't find a competent gunsmith, post some very detailed pictures of the trigger showing the amount of slack. i'll bet Dan Fl or Canebrake can tell whether it's got excessive movement and needs to go back to Remington. Cane had some issues with his R1 and said Remington was very good about fixing it and quickly.
